Holiday snacking, oh, how we love thee. This year, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, we may not be gathered around at the office Halloween candy bowl or a neighborhood cookie swap, but we will, in fact be cooking, baking, and decorating. There will be pumpkin pie, and sugar cookies, and spicy pecans galore. There will be gingerbread houses, and cheese balls, and cracker toffee. There may even be Magnolia Market's Fall Cookie Kit.

But sometimes, when we're ready to snack up a holiday-themed storm, we simply feel like popping open a bag of treats and calling it a day. Well, that glorious day has come: The Reindeer Games limited edition batch of Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies have arrived, and we can't wait to sink our teeth into them. Each vanilla-flavored shortbread cookie is shaped like a reindeer, and is covered with green-and-white icing and sprinkles.

Ready to get snacking? You can buy a nine-ounce bag for a suggested retail price of $3.99 at Target, Dollar General, and other select retailers. You can also buy an 11-ounce bag of the Reindeer-shaped treats at Walmart for the bargain price of $2.98.

In addition to this seasonal release, Ferrara—Mother's Cookies parent company—has a stellar holiday assortment on deck including BRACH’s Giant Candy Canes, SweeTARTS Twisted Holiday Punch Ropes, The Elf on Shelf Fruit-flavored Snacks, and the new Keebler Make-a-Wreath Cookie Decorating Kit.

We'd love to hear from you: What's your favorite fall or winter packaged snack? Or are you all about DIY-ing those spicy pecans, shortbread cookies, gingerbread, and more?
